Ok...
first you need to find the default gateway of the router,u need to do this settings in the computer which is wired to the router,securing the network over a wireless connections is not suggested..
click on start,run,and type in cmd,hit enter,a black box should appear in that box type in ipconfig and hit enter,once you hit enter it will give u a lot of results check the default gateway the generic default gateway is 192.168.0.1,might be different in your case incase if you have setup in a different manner,now open an internet explorer page and remove the website name that present in the addess box,now without http or www type in the numbers,it will tell you to put in the user name and password,username is blank and password is admin (this is generic to all the delink routers provided you have not changed it earlier,if u ave changed it then put in the user name and password that you have setup,now it should open a dlink router page,now in that router page you will see an option that will says wireless,under wireless you will see an option that says security,click on security,and then under security page you will see security mode,from here you can use the security type that you want to use and then save the changes once it has saved the changes you wireless netwokr will be secured.
PS:make sure the computer is connected with a wire to the router when we are setting the security in the wireless network....

How do you turn security off in a Dlink DIR-655 with out removing the security code?


You can disable the security by setting it to "none" in the setup page. This will disable the security, but should not (hopefully) erase your key.

My dlink dir-655 lose connections every few minutes, no idea why? Can someone help??


This could be because of the security settings not being compatible with the unit trying to obtain an IP address.

I would suggest taking the wireless security off completely to see if the problem perssist and try using the highest security possible.

Good Luck

You must manually configure the wireless settings. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Remove all the listed network there. Then click Add > Add Network in Range > Select your signal > Type the security if you have and press connect. That should do it.
